** Wounded Scalise & Republicans Mocked By Terroristic Social Media**
Just hours later, however, Pelosi criticized “sanctimonious” Republicans for blaming the shooting on left-wing political rhetoric after a reporter pointed out the shooter’s “anti-Republican sentiment” at Pelosi’s press briefing.
“How dare they say such a thing. How dare they,” responded Pelosi, who said in January, the day after Inauguration Day, that Republicans “pray in church on Sunday and prey on everyone else the rest of the week.”
Hodgkinson supported Sen. Bernie Sanders and volunteered for his presidential campaign, and he railed against “the rich” and Republicans in letters to the editor he submitted to his local newspaper.
A post-shooting commentary at The Huffington Post, the left-wing news website, pushed back against accusations of left-wing violence. The story documented acts of right-wing violence, including controversial statements made by then-candidate Trump that encouraged violence.
The story also claimed that Republicans are “moving to deprive an estimated 24 million people of their health insurance – an act that will cause an estimated 43,000 needless deaths each year.”
The story linked to a Washington Post story in which the headline warned that repealing the Affordable Care Act will “kill” 43,000 people annually.
A Democratic strategist, meanwhile, has launched a “Hunt Republicans” hash tag on Twitter after the shooting and defended it to media.
“I’m not advocating violence but I’m saying I understand it,” Jim Devine, a New Jersey activist, told a newspaper there. “This is the chickens coming home to roost.”
There has to be more tolerance, Kelly observes, for opposing points of view.
“That is the reasons soldiers go and fight war,” says Kelly. “It’s not so they can oppose their will upon others but so that other people can speak freely whatever their view is.”
There is no room for hatred, he adds, only disagreement.
James Hodgkinson opened fire on congressional Republicans Wednesday morning, severely wounding House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA). He also wounded congressional staffers and members of the Capitol Police. Hodgkinson fired somewhere between 50-60 shots during the attack before being shot by police. He later died of his injuries. Rep. Scalise is doing considerably better, but remains in critical condition after threes surgeries. A press conference by Dr. Jack Sava at the MedStar Washington Medical Center reported that the Louisiana congressman was on the verge of death when he arrived.
Now, the Daily Caller is reporting that an assassination list was found on Hodgkinson, and if true, had three members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus on it:
James T. Hodgkinson, the shooter who opened fire on dozens of Republican congressmen and staffers at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday, had a list of Republican names in his pocket that was recovered by the FBI, The Daily Caller has learned.
The news that the shooter had a list of names suggests the shooting was not a random outburst, but instead appears to be a premeditated political assassination.
The list was written out on notepad paper and found in the shooter’s pocket, according to multiple sources with intimate knowledge of the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing the sensitivity of the investigation. The list of names included Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, TheDC has confirmed.
The FBI has contacted at least one of the three congressmen to inform them of their inclusion on the list.
The FBI also recovered a cell phone, a computer and a camera in the shooter’s van and is processing the items, according to a statement the agency issued on Thursday.
We’ll keep you updated on this matter. Hodgkinson reportedly ran into Reps. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) and Ron DeSantis (R-FL), as they were leaving the field and asked them if the players practicing were Democrats or Republicans. Moments later, shot were fired.
****UPDATE: Fox News’ Chad Pergram confirms list with Reps. Mo Brooks (R-AL), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), and Trent Franks (R-AZ), but sources caution on calling it an “assassination list.”
